Stila All Over Shimmer Duo in Kitten

Hi there!
I thought I'd do a little review of my Stila All Over Shimmer Duo in Kitten! Honestly until this year other than the ysl touche eclat, I did not know anything about highlighting and when I would see these really shimmery products in store I would think, what are you ment to do with this?, you'd look like a glitter ball if you wore this over your face haha! I know know don't laugh at me haha. However for Christmas last year I got a Samsung Galaxy Tab and YouTube tutorials came into my life!
Since discovering YouTube tutorials my make collection has continued to grow including highlighters, I bought the Sleek Contour Kit and this was my first highlighter I owned and when a friend of mine who is a make up artist complimented my highlight I was so pleased and so started to look at more highlighting products!
Shaaanxo is my favourite YouTuber! She's from New Zealand and her make up always looks flawless and stunning! So when she raved about her holy grail product being the Stila All Over Shimmer Duo in Kitten I just had to have it! I have had this for a few months now but it was so difficult to track down, every UK website I could find it on was always sold out! However since finally getting my hands on it, it seems to be popping up alot more, they even have it on ASOS now! (I got mine from the Stila Website which is currently sold out again)

I love the packaging, it's smaller than the palm of my hand and really thin so takes up little room in my make up bag and its pink and shimmery! What's not to love! It also comes with two different shimmer colours which can be used individually or mixed together so really its 3 highlighters in one and for only £15!

I really like this highlight and my preferred way to use it is my mixing the two sides together, however I love using the bronze side in summer. The product is really soft and creamy so it's lovely to use, it swatches beautifully and the colours are stunning! However my only negative about this product is that although the swatches are pigmented I feel it doesn't show up as well on the cheek bone as other highlighters I have tried (for example mac soft and gentle which my mum has got me for Christmas) however I do really love this highlighter! and will still continue to use it even when I get my new mac one but I think this is better suited for day time make up as when I'm going out I prefer a much stronger contour and highlight!

(Top swatch is both colours mixed together, middle is bronze side and bottom is pink side)

All in all I really like this product and would recommend to anyone on the look out for a new highlighter it's really 3 highlighters in one so great value for money and it's also great for travelling due to the compact size!
Hope you enjoyed my review of this product!
